Recent Surveys by Others
SIE is gathering surveys conducted or commissioned by Pikes Peak region organizations and making them available here as appropriate. There is a wealth of information contained in these surveys and studies which we believe help to establish a baseline from which the community can work in the areas of community and economic development.

Assessing Public Sentiment for Community and Economic Development
Mountains Matter to Millenials
In September of 2016 the Pikes Peak Heritage Series convened more than 110 community members and young professionals to discuss the results of the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation and Leisure Survey and how Colorado’s natural assets can be leveraged to make this a region for young leaders to work, play and stay. The Heritage Series has released a white paper on the event and survey to drive forward discussion and encourage action by providing valuable information on the attitudes of millennials on outdoor recreation in the Pikes Peak region.

3. To spark a conversation among all community stakeholders with the hope of inspiring cohesion and collaboration
